Ted Cruz: An attack on 2nd Amendment

by JAMES ARKIN | Politico  |  published on July 21, 2013


GOP Sen. Ted Cruz on Friday slammed President Barack Obama after his remarks about Trayvon Martin, saying the president has a “disregard for the Bill of Rights.”

“It is not surprising that the president uses it seems every opportunity he can to try to go after our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms,” Cruz said on CNN. “I think it is unfortunate that this president and this administration has a consistent disregard for the Bill of Rights.”

Cruz, who is in Iowa, spoke after he had addressed a GOP group in the state. Cruz told reporters he hadn’t yet watched Obama’s remarks, CNN said. But when he asked to comment on Obama’s call during his statement at the White House for a review of stand your ground laws in the states, Cruz answered that Obama was disregarding constitutional rights.
